The winner of our Persona 4 Golden Premium dance contest photo
The winner of our Persona 4 Golden Premium dance contest
by Dale North

First off, you all made my week. I loved ALL of the entries for our Persona 4 Golden Premium Edition dance contest. So many great videos! I wish we had more than one prize to give. Thanks so much to all that entered!

But, as we said earlier, there were only 10,000 of these Premium Editions made, which means they're already pretty hard to come by.

Our winner was absolutely shameless in his dancing. He doesn't necessarily have 'moves,' but somehow he still nailed many of the orignal opening's dances. Levito, you are a superstar, and our winner. I hope the whole world sees your video. The Kanji section kills me every time.

Ah, but so many of these were so great. Sooooo great.

Shadowfox, you really can move! Atashi, so cute!!! SiriusK, thanks for busting out of club to make your vid. Crystalking18, I laughed really hard. SillyReaper, fantastic effort -- it was like a music video! TheBigSpoon: you are amazing. WKG, you say you can't dance, but you had those moves down. Dels Catt, the multi-can scene had me.

And Josh Paige, you know my weakness. Those spins made me squeal out loud!

Hit the jump to watch more of our entries.

Last day to enter our Persona 4 Golden dance off contest photo
Last day to enter our Persona 4 Golden dance off contest
by Dale North

[Update: Contest closed! Winner announced here.]

Today is the last day to shake your ass in front of a webcam to win a copy of the Persona 4 Golden Premium Edition for PS Vita. Inspired by the fantastic opening intro song for P4G, our contest has the best dancer nabbing this rare (only 10,000 made) copy. Tomorrow we'll judge all of this week's entries and choose, so if you haven't, enter now.

Even if you don't feel like dancing, you should at least check out the amazing entries in the comments section. SO GOOD. You'll see some good attempts at mimicking the dances from the game's intro movie, complete with trashcan action. Look out for a full Teddie costume, too.  There's even a shameless corgi dancing entry! The corgi spins are so elegant!

Dead or Alive 5 costume packs just in time for Halloween

Devolver Digital asks Jim Sterling five sexy questions

Devolver Digital is one of my favorite companies, mostly due to the fact that it never takes itself or what it does too seriously. CFO Fork Parker is well worth following on Twitter, and the publisher generally has a positive...

E3: 15 minutes to run through all of E3 photo
E3: 15 minutes to run through all of E3
by Jonathan Holmes

So here is my 3rd attempt at trying to see all of the stuff I missed at E3 right before the show closes (here are the 1st and 2nd years' videos if you want). For whatever reason, we got A LOT of requests to shoot another one of these, which was a little awkward. It's like having someone ask you to "tell that exact same joke you told last year, but more funny this time!" I'm not sure we pulled it off, but as long as you guys keep asking us to try, we'll keep doing our best make it happen. 

The biggest difference about this year's video is that it's the first time we've integrated multiple Dtoid fans into the shoot. That's mostly because the amount of people that stopped and asked us for a picture or a quick conversation was way up this year. It was strange and flattering. It only felt right to try to return the strange and flattering favor and include as many of these fans in the video as I could. Talking to people who don't hate me is something I will always make time for, regardless of how many videogames are around me or how many wrap-up videos I'm trying to shoot at the time. Being not hated is awesome.

That said, there is a fine line between being "not hated" and "having a man blow... kisses at you while you're trying to demo Resident Evil 6". I can only hope that my dear friend Jim Sterling learns to find that line before E3 next year. That kind of behavior is very distracting!

E3: Chest bumps with booth babes photo
E3: Chest bumps with booth babes
by Jonathan Holmes

I'm still not totally straight on the proper terminology here. Booth babe? Booth Companion? They both sound kind of creepy, which makes sense, as the whole concept of paying women to stand around at a videogame event so attendees can take pictures of themselves hugging them is kind of creepy. 

I asked some of these people if they wanted to chest bump, and a lot of them did. Watch for bonus cameos from professional Juliet Starling cosplayer Jessica Nigri, ex-Dtoid live streamer Pico Mause, the developers of this game about lemurs, and many more.
